How it Started

Mindy Rives is the creator and founder of Advent Prep Club. She is wife to Josh and mama to Lucy (10), June (8) and Ruby (3). A self-proclaimed Christmas fanatic, Mindy began the Rives family Advent activity calendar in 2012 to build tradition, make the Christmas season linger, and create a meaningful, memorable, FUN and Christ-centered holiday experience for her family.

    “For the past eight years, my family has created a lifetime of Christmas memories, thanks to the creativity, planning and abundant resources Mindy gives! We’ve been able to adapt our Advent activities every year to fit our kids’ ages, our budget and our family goals. I get so many questions from friends and family each year about our Advent activity calendar, and it’s my joy to give full credit to Mindy for our fun!”

In a season where it is easy to get caught up in the busyness and material things, our Advent activity calendar allows my family to slow down and create cherished memories – all while pointing us to Christ and the true gifts of the Christmas season.”

  • Coats Family

    “In the Coats family, we use our Advent activity calendar to focus our hearts on the true meaning of Christmas with intentional, fun, daily activities! It is one of the sweetest gifts we give our children each year as we slow down together to prepare Him room and remember the greatest gift we’ve been given in Jesus. Mindy and I have shared ideas and resources over the years, and I am thrilled to see Advent Prep Club come to life. It’s sure to bless countless families for years to come!”
